The Voices Inside Your Head: Who’s in Charge of Your Life?                  Neil A. Fiore, Ph.D.
I know the voice of depression still calls to you.
I know those habits that can ruin your life still send their invitations.
But you are with the Friend now and look so much stronger.
You can stay that way and even bloom! . . .  
. . . O keep squeezing drops of the Sun from your prayers and work and music
and from your companion’s beautiful laughter
and from the most insignificant movements of your own holy body.
Now, sweet one, be wise.
Cast all your votes for Dancing!

Who is it inside your head that speaks with the voices of depression, anxiety, and worry? Who is it that listens to those voices without identifying with them? Who is the part that feels insecure, lacks confidence and motivation, and seeks personal power?
Where is the part of you that can offer compassion and guidance to yourself?
Does your strong and powerful Self need a wake-up call to take charge?
